BParker, CPA* answered:

This is a ridiculous position for the HOA to take. Why would HUD, or anyone for that matter, pay the back HOA fees until the home is actually purchased. What should happen is the late HOA fees being paid be made a condition of the closing. In other words, once the deal is done, the title company is required to pay these late fees as part of their duty as the escrow agency. This is the way all such encumbrances, or liens, on a home being purchased are handled.

Are you sure this is the real situation?

There might be some comfort having the same company and if possible the same person within the company to sell your home.
However, your purchase in Queen Creek will be probably serviced best by somebody local who knows the area well. they can help you select a good realtor for Oceanside, too.
Please give me a call if you'd like to discuss it further.

I am a very experienced property manager and would be happy to answer any questions that you have. Do you have a property manager handling the home now? Has the property manager served the tenant an eviction notice? Are you managing the home yourself? Why is the tenant refusing to pay rent? How far behind is the tenant?

Give me a call or send me a message through Trulia and I would be happy to help!

Rocky Dole answered:
I would suggest that you contact an attorney prior to not paying these fees. One thing that you will want to keep in mind is that HOA fees are generally considered to be personal liabilities rather than sticking with the property. This means if the home is sold or repossessed then you could still end up owing the HOA fees. ... more

Hi Amanda,
The easiest place to start is with a good lender that loves working with first time home buyers and doesn't mind taking the time to help you repair a few things. A great one in the Queen Creek area is Laura Sylvester with OnQ Financial. She can be reached at
While you are doing that, I would be honored to meet with you and help you get started on the home search/real estate side of things. I live , work and volunteer here and am the rare full time Realtor.
Please don't hesitate to call if I can answer any questions.

I have done anything from disputing little areas of concern, to paying off collections. It is hard to give you advice in this topic without looking at your credit. I recommend my lender Jud Holmes. He will help you check your score free of charge and redirect you through a company (if needed)

you may not need this, and perhaps Jud may just ask you to pay a couple of things and you can buy after a quick rescore of less than 3 weeks.

Laura Feghali answered:
Hello Mandy,
I don't believe that it's a question of HUD attempting to hide something from the buyer but more that they don't want to pay for the utilities to be turned on and then back off. In my area, sometimes the buyer pays to have the utilities turned on and then off for the inspection as some lenders require them to be functioning at the time the property is inspected.

Good luck!

Ron Thomas answered:
Understand that the Housing Market is not a single house, 3/2, 1546 sqft on a 6500 sqft lot.
The Market is many, many houses, all over the country, some small, some large, some grandious, some ramshackle, many depressed.

Some houses will go down in value because people don't like the house or the location.
Some houses will go up in value, because more than one person will want to buy it.

The only purpose that the AVERAGE serves is to compare with previous periods to see whether we are moving up or down; and we are always moving UP or DOWN, there is no plateau.

Some areas and cities have forces which are lifting it UP in employment, optimism and desirablility.
Some areas have things going on to keep it depressed.
